Jebel Hafeet Road and Mountain

In the outskirts of the emirate of Abu Dhabi (about a 2-hour drive from Abu Dhabi city centre), lies the Jebel Hafeet Mountain -- right on the border shared by the UAE and Oman. Attractions are ample at the foot of the mountain, including luxury hotels with hot springs and refreshing pools, a zoo containing 4,000 animals, and caves open for exploration. An unexpected highlight is the namesake road leading here, voted 'best road on the planet' by several magazines based on its driver-friendliness and drama of the surrounding scenery.

Do & See

Abu Dhabi’s attractions are diverse and vary from landmark architectural triumphs to centuries-old structures and beaches. The Corniche sweeps along the waterfront from one side of the city to other, passing by the lavishly-planted Al Markaziyah Gardens, one of the many parks in the city, and Lulu Island across the water, which is delightful with its palm trees and nature reserve.
